The cemetery was very well maintained. Flags had been placed at each marker in honor of Memorial Day.

It is hard for me to pass through Salisbury without visiting the Cemetery. This place is such a history lesson. The 11700 Union prisoners that died and were buried in trenches are well marked with a marker at the end of each trench. The historic cemetery is located at 202 Government Rd and the Annex cemetery is at 501 Statesville Boulevard behind the VA Hospital. Both are well worth a visit but the historic cemetery is a must.

This past summer, my father in law was buried in the National Cemetary. I was very impressed with the service and the respect that was given to my loved one and to my grieving family. The grounds are kept immaculate. For Christmas, they have a wreath laying ceremony where the Veterans are remembered and each branch of service are recognized. Those who come can take a wreath provided by the cemetary for their loved one's grave. Even in the rain, they did not skimp on the ceremony.

If you are a War Between the States or just a history buff, this is a must see. More unknown American soldiers buried here than at any other place in the world.

Just off main street, this somewhat hidden cemetery can be an emotional stop for someone that understands what it represents. It is beautifully maintained, and since the mill next to it is no longer creating a cacophony of noise, it is always peaceful and quiet. Just looking over the hundreds of white headstones always makes me become emotional...but when you read the story of the thousands of Union soldiers buried in mass graves on the site...it can be almost too much to bear. Anyone with any appreciation of history, and of the sacrifices so many have made for this country, should spend some time walking among the headstones.
